Win 2K Problem

  tbh72 12:13 18 Mar 2003

Need some advice regarding Win 2K, I have made no changes to my system.

Over the past 24 hours, when booting the computer and entering the OS some programs have NOT been able to load.

I typically connect straight to ADSL, the icon used to appear in the system tray but doesn't when I have this problem occur. I then always load OE6, followed by IE6. As nothing happen's I usually end up restarting the computer, as I do this suddenly everything becomes usable, but alas the PC is now shutting down.

When load the PC in safe mode & run "Scandisk" (Old 98SE user, lol) this fixes the problem and the programs load fine, but it reports no problems... I can't get my head around this any advice how to resolve this issue would be welcome, failing that I'll go back to 98SE.... I hate waisting time waiting around fixing this problem with my current solution??

Thanks in advance

using fat or ntfs?

  tbh72 18:54 18 Mar 2003

I'm just using fat, this was due to the fact I was using dual boot with win 98, which I have since removed.

Have you tried sfc /scannow

TY spikey, I'm just carrying out your suggestion, I have no idea what it is or what it mean's, but it is reading / copying files from the cd!!!

I did notice that the active update was active, I have received several updates - I assume this may have caused the problem. BRB, I'm just gonna see if this has worked, XX fingers

It will scan then replace any corrupted/damaged system files.

Post back with results.

Nope, that didn't work. Sorry for the slow response. I am now using the laptop, so will be able to report back quicker
